There are two kinds of drunk people in the world: the kind who have three drinks and are willing to walk across the whole damn city, and the kind who have three drinks and can’t be fucked to walk anywhere (Ok, there’s a lot more than two kinds of drunks in the world, but you know what I’m getting at). I’m part of the second group. Maybe it’s because I walk everywhere normally, but when I drink I’m like, “Ugh…these stupid drunk legs think walking is bullshit,” and then I find an alternative option, like uberX.

In the past Uber hasn’t exactly been the territory of the broke-ass. While getting picked up in a black town car instead of enduring the walk/Muni/BART of shame, has its, shall we say, spiritual advantages, it really beats the snot out of your wallet. Luckily, the fine people over at Uber have taken your plight as one of their concerns and have introduced uberX. Not only is uberX as dependable as the rest of the options in Uber’s fleet, it’s also cheaper than a cab. There is no need to tip, and all payment goes through the Uber app. You never need to have cash on hand, making it perfect for broke-asses across the nation.

To show you that they’ve got your interests at heart, uberX is doing you a major solid: they are giving you a FREE uberX ride. That’s right, new users get a FREE ride up to $20! Just sign up online or download the app and use this promo code: BrokeAss.


Sweet right? Ride safely out there my dear broke-asses.
